Medical Isolation Gown Pattern Package
We are updating every day, and we will push out "updated pattern and tech pack" as this style improves.
Fabric required: 2.5 yds / garment
Update: now isolation can be washed and reusable, finish neck and bottom of the gown.
Also I recommend the use of twill tape instead of velcro for the back closure. Twill tape can be also used to substitute self-belt.
Fashion Girls reverse-engineered a pattern based on HALYARD* AAMI Level 2 Over-The-Head Isolation Gown and Elastic Cuffs (a sample provided from UCLA doctor / confirmed also by Mt. Sinai ER doctor in NY).

“Among the needs, the mayor (NYC) said, are three million N95 masks, 50 million surgical masks and 15,000 ventilators. New York State only has about 3,000 ventilators, one for each intensive-care hospital room."
"Health care workers will need another 45 million of each of the following: surgical gowns, coveralls, gloves, regular face masks and face shields, the mayor said."

Contingency Capacity Strategies
Shift gown use towards cloth isolation gowns.Reusable (i.e., washable) gowns are typically made of polyester or polyester-cotton fabrics. Gowns made of these fabrics can be safely laundered according to routine procedures and reused. Care should be taken to ensure that HCP do not touch outer surfaces of the gown during care.
